STP Loop

It looks from the logs that there is a loop. Is there any way to track down where it is comng from?

it looks like my g2/5 is the only thing that is the common factor.

Any ideas?

Re: STP Loop

It doesn't look like a loop, but probably some trunk in the network is bouncing pretty regularly. Each time it goes up or down, STP holds a new root bridge election and/or new paths to the root bridge. As this occurs, various ports will be changed between forwarding and blocking, and hosts may appear to be coming from different directions (ports) after each transition.

You need to go through the trunks in the network to find which one is bouncing.

Re: STP Loop

Will A 4500 log interface updowns by default?

Re: STP Loop

I'm fairly certain it will. I think in your situation, the trunk that is bouncing is not on the switch whose log you posted.

Re: STP Loop

I looked in all of my switches and I dont see any bouncing. any other ideas?

Re: STP Loop

Are there any hubs in your network?

Is Bpduguard enabled on user ports?

Have you received any TCN traps in the moment of flapping?

Re: STP Loop

We have seen this when the Supervisor is starting to go south and we have replaced a lot of these . Make sure test diags are set to complete and try rebooting switch .
